Question about Lands Phones

I am trying to install a RadioShack Wall Phone Mounting Plate. I don't know what colored wires go into which mounting strips. I have eight wires, blue, white, red, and green and 4 that are multi-colored.

    The mounting plate I have is different than the one shown in the pictures. On the left side of the modular jack are even number wire mounting strips and on the right side of the modular jack are odd numbers. There are a total of 12 slots in which to place a wire. I don't know which wires to use as there was not a plate there originally.

    Can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks.

    The RadioShack Wall Phone Mounting Plate is Cat No 279-403. I think the last 3 digits referr to color. I did find it on the RadioShack web site.

    I hope your child is doing better and will be out of the hospital soon.

    Do you have any sort of model numbers of the plate and the phone

  • paul proctor Apr 06, 2008

    Hi the problem im having with this problem is that their are that many different types to check that its hard for me to locate the type you have.
    Is their any numbers on it so as i can narrow it down a bit ill tell you the main problem for me is that i live in uk so i have to research it first before i can help you as i dont want to give false or wrong info to you as that would just make the problem worse witch i dont thinks fair for either of us.

    If their are no numbers or anything on it then is their a picture on the net that i can look at as this would help me help you.

    Just please try and give me as much info as possible as one of my pet hates is to leave people hanging not knowing if anybody can help you, I dont like to give up i dont give up if i was doing the job myself so i dont think its right just not answering your comments leaving you thinking we cant help you.

    Sorry its been a few days since i left a message but my kid has been in hospital in another part of england and just got back so sorry about that but i hope i can help with your problem and if i cant then i would tell you that and not leave you waiting for response.

    Whilst waiting for your reply ill find out as much as i can.
    You say it has eight wires is this on the plate or the amount of wires you need to put into the plate.

    Ill get back to you as soon as i find anything for you ok or when i get your reply,
    Speak soon and im online all day for the next few weeks so depending on when you get my message ill keep checking for your response ok

  • paul proctor Apr 07, 2008

    Hi can i just check the wires from your home that you want to put into the plate you have 8 wires that you need to wire into the mounting plate is this correct let me know ok

  • paul proctor Apr 07, 2008

    Have you taken out old mounting plate or is this new phone line

  • paul proctor Apr 07, 2008

    Also is it just one phone line your putting in i mean are you just having one phone installed or two or more different phone lines

  • paul proctor Apr 07, 2008

    Did you have a phone wired in before because as far as i can tell you only need to use two of the wires to install one phone line on mine i have four wires blue/white white/blue orange/white white/orange on mine only the two blue wires are used

  • paul proctor Apr 07, 2008

    Do you have a blue wire and a white/blue wire if you do then put blue in pin4 and blue/white in pin5 then try your phone if not working then swap these round the other way ok.

    Let me know what happens if it dont work then let me know nad ill have another look the other wires are there if you have different phone lines like an office does but if its just home use and only one phone line then you only need to use 2 wires.
    Let me know if i got it right about you only need 1 phone line or are you running more than 1 phone like an office would

How do I wall mount the phone, the pins were not included.


The back of the phone or the back of the mounting plate for the phone will have standard wall mount slotted holes to hang the phone on a wall mount outlet that has the pins sticking out to recieve the phone or mounting plate.

Trying to replace regular phone mount with a wall mount


If your just changing the jack to a hanging type, the fix is easy. You remove the old jack, replace with new one connecting the original wiring...red/green or blue/white.

Replaceing phone wall plate


Hi Leanne!

Normally the conductors in phone cable are colored green, red, black and yellow in older style wiring. Green and red are used for a single line, and black and yellow are for a second line. Newer systems use wires that have conductors twisted together in pairs. White with a blue stripe paired with solid blue or blue with a white stripe is line 1. White with an orange stripe paired with solid orange or orange with a white stripe is line 2. (At least this is true in the US. You said "cheers" so maybe you're not in the US and the color coding's different.)

Chances are your line is using the blue and white wires.Residential telephone equipment isn't polarity sensitive so it really doesn't matter which wire you hook to L+ and L-. Try the white/blue combination first. If you don't get dialtone then try red/black. If still no luck you only have two more combinations to try.

Before you start with the wiring, take another phone on the line off the hook (if you have another one). This will prevent an incoming call from ringing the line, which can give a shock if you happen to be touching a bare end. The ringing voltage is much higher than the normal phone line voltage which won't bother you.

Removal of connecting cords


It doesn't come out. The phone does, however, provide two large tabs in the bottom of the base that you can wrap the excess line cord around to make wall mounting possible.

Telephone wall jack


Did the old wall jack work before you removed it?
Are the wires still connected or do you remember where the wires used to go.
If so, then what I would do, is with a phone connected, start disconnecting 1 wire at a time. When the line goes dead, then you know that is one of the wires that you need to use. Reconnect that wire, and mark it, and Keep doing this until you find the other wire that makes the line go dead.
Then you will know which 2 wires you will need to get the jack working.
Usually, the standard color wires that you need for the new jack is Red and Green for a single line phone jack.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

How do I wire a new phone jack ...


The new jack should have the same color code as the wires.
All the red's go together on one screw, and the green's as well.

Inside phone wiring


Red and green (2-wires) are all that is typically needed. This does depend on if the other end of the wire is properly hooked up!
